Quote of the day No 170

Monday 27 May 2019

“There she is — all five ton of her,” and he pointed through the doorway of the steelworks towards a long, long, very narrow metal shell.

If he’d said 50 tons, I would have believed him. I looked again at what was to be my new home. Of course, the whole thing was absurd; no one could ever actually live in such a confined space. All right for holidays but not as a home for ... weeks ... months ... years . . .

“Don’t look so worried,” — it was Peter Ellis the boatbuilder again. “In another three weeks or so you won’t recognise it; just wait until John and Pete start fitting her out.” And he was right. By the time we had made two or three more visits to discuss size of wardrobe, storage space for bed linen, chosen carpets, blinds and found to my great pleasure that my Ercol dining table and the bottom half of the sideboard to match it would pass through the doorway, the excitement flooded back ... the excitement that had started only nine months before.
